On August 27, we published an official proposal from Angelyna Russo, the owner of Lock n Load, a Southside business. It called for the establishment of the post of Deputy Mayor in Santa Ramona Valley, the Mayor and Deputy Mayor to come from different areas of the city - one from Northside, one from Southside. The same day we published an official rebuttal from the Mayor, agreeing with the proposal for a Deputy but disagreeing with the idea that the two officials should come from different area.

This opinion piece continues the debate. The opinion column in the Santa Ramona Chronicles is open for others to express their opinions on this very important topic.

From Angelyna Russo, Very Concerned Southside Resident:

The city council has very much been nearly all Northside residents: Evelyna Stone, Northside; Dimitri Rousseau, Northside; Jay Stone, Northside; Sarina Jade-Ramirez, Northside.  There have been various people in and out of seats, but overwhelming residents of Northside.  Whoever w...

From the Mayors Office.

In past elections the City of Santa Ramona had an entire council behind the mayor, made up a various persons from all over the City. We have also had at least one previous who was living in and a very active voice in the South side. In both these situations plans were put in place to help the people of that area. They did not do enough or produce the desired results.

This supposed divide between North and South is something that is more prevalent to the residents of the South side than anyone else. It is the residents from that area of the City who mostly perpetuate this idea. This office recognizes that the 'South side' faces a different set of challenges to those of the North side, it also considers Santa Ramona Valley as one City. What happens in one place effects everyone not just the resident of a particular area. This office believes it is time to stop thinking of a divided City.

To address the matter of the clean up program in the City. This incentive...

Angelyna Russo
Business Owner: Lock N Load
Resident of Southside Santa Ramona Valley

Proposal to change the political structure of Santa Ramona Valley to allow for more inclusiveness.

In past elections we have had a one sided elected mayor that could not possibly know the best course of action for the complex and diverse residents of the city of Santa Ramona Valley.  There was no way to ensure that both the Northside and Southside were adequately accounted for in proposals that had direct dealings with their areas of town.  There are two very different sides of town, for instance:

*Businesses such as Lock N Load, Black Thorn, Alley Cats, The Southside Clinic, The Gateway House, the Adult Store, all drive down property values.  These businesses are not welcome in Northside for that reason and Southside needs to keep rents to a level affordable to those that live here.  It's a divide that both sides must accept and encourage.

*Specialty boutiques and stores that sell expens...

From the Sheriff's Department

To take effective action by vigorous law enforcement, accessible treatment and a new emphasis on education and prevention to:

● Increase the safety of communities from drug-related crime;
● Reduce the acceptability and availability of drugs to young people; and
● Reduce the health risks and other damage related to drug misuse.

What is the issue?

Santa Ramona Valley is struggling to overcome challenges associated with drug use, such as the spread of disease, issues related to homelessness, rising rates of overdose deaths, and drug related crime.

There is a revolving door phenomenon, in which people are arrested, detained, and released—only to be arrested again and in which police are called to engage and detain people who clearly need social support or physical and mental health services instead.

It is therefore proposed to introduce the following measures to assist drug users. This proposal does not address drug dealers and would not extend protections...

A number of jurors failed to show up for the trial of former mayoral candidate Manny Moore this week. He elected to be tried by the judge.

Manny Moore chose to be tried by the judge so as not to have to turn up for his trial a third time. His first trial was halted because Moore’s counsel objected to the judge, as she was married to the arresting officer. The judge, Eve Stone, ruled this was a valid objection and the trial was rescheduled.

Moore was charged with possession of an unregistered firearm in public, It was alleged that the gun’s serial number was scratched off, also making the weapon illegal.

Moore refused a plea deal from the prosecution and pleaded not guilty. He was found guilty and sentenced to a $1000 fine and five hours in prison.

Manny Moore has recently opened a bank in Santa Ramona, the Valley Moore Bank. It is not known what the reaction the Division of Financial Institutions, the part of the California Department of Business Oversight that regulates banks in t...
